Kamov Ka 226 is a small, twin-engine utility helicopter. The Ka 226 features an interchangeable mission pod, rather than a conventional cabin, allowing for use of various accommodation or equipment configurations.
Design is a refinement of the proven Ka 226 with various interchangeable mission pods. The aircraft is fitted with a new rotor system, increased visibility nose, and new passenger cabin design. The Ka 226 features a new transmission system and is made largely from composite materials.
Ka 226 can operate in temperatures from - 50C to +45C, under harsh marine and icing conditions at geographical latitudes to 75. Compared with single rotor helicopters with tail rotor configuration, coaxial rotor helicopters have a number of advantages due to its specific layout:

- the absence of the tail rotor allows for higher load lifting capacity, higher OGE hover ceiling and ability to fly at the altitude of 6000 m due to high efficiency of the helicopter coaxial configuration

- simple interaction between individual helicopter control systems makes the control of KA 226 helicopter much easier

- shorter tail boom makes KA 226 helicopter compact and highly maneuverable, that allows to operate the helicopter better from off-shore platforms, ships, and other limited spaces:  for example during firefighting maneuvers’ close to urban high rise areas.

- without tail rotor KA 226 helicopter can land and take-off from unprepared sites with overgrown shrubs and it also  eliminates  ground personnel injuries.
